Celtic postponement is bad news for Rangers as under-fire mainstay could miss out
Celtic’s Scottish Premiership clash with Dundee on Wednesday night has been postponed after huge snowfall across central Scotland on Wednesday – and Old Firm rivals Rangers stand to be the biggest losers following the cancellation.
Celtic mainstay Mikael Lustig was due to serve a one-match ban against Dundee but could now sit out against Rangers on March 11th meaning Brendan Rodgers will need to strengthen his side by not playing the Swedish defender.
Lustig has been a weak-link for Celtic for a while and with the Gers’ attack in particularly good form the possibility of getting at the under-fire right-back would have had the Light Blues’ frontmen salivating.
The defender was savaged by Celtic fans after his performance against Zenit St. Petersburg in the Europa League defeat with fans keen to see the Swede axed regardless of his suspension and replaced with either Eboue Kouassi or Anthony Ralston.
A win over their bitter rivals would see the Gers close to within three points of their rivals in the league table – unless the Dundee game takes place before then – and would add further pressure on the Hoops as Murty’s side look to secure an unlikely title triumph and secure the Gers 55th Scottish league flag.
